New leopard for the Gouritz Corridor!

Published: 10 June 2008

To our great excitement of looking through hundreds of baboon photographs, we happened on this slender young leopard – only to discover that this youngster has not yet been captured by our cameras! That brings the total number of leopards we have in the Gouritz corridor to 7!

New leopard for the Gouritz Corridor!

This leopard, nicknamed “Doc” after the owners of the property where the camera was placed, was “seen” slinking around the side of the Rooiberg mountain.

We hope to capture “Doc” on one of our other strategically places cameras so that we can have a better idea of the home range size for leopards in this region!
